Call for Nominations


Iona College is accepting nominations for incredible women who have demonstrated outstanding career accomplishments or contributions to their community to honor at the 2020 Trustees Scholarship Award Gala.

Nominate an Honoree

In the fall of 1969, Iona College began welcoming female students into the full-time student body. That historic moment triggered a sweeping change at the traditionally male institution. To commemorate 50 years of women at Iona College, the College will embark on a celebration beginning in September 2019 and culminating in May 2020.

This campus-wide celebration will include lectures, exhibitions and special events hosted by the LaPenta School of Business, the School of Arts & Science and various campus organizations. Programs will highlight women and their contributions to the College and the larger society.

A calendar with event listings is currently being developed. We hope that alumnae will use some of these campus events to organize mini-reunions with friends throughout the year.

We invite everyone to participate by attending special events, visiting the Share A Story page, and providing photos to events@iona.edu.

Get in Touch
Our Office of Alumni Relations is helping to coordinate the overall effort and can be a resource for anyone with questions, information or ideas. They can be contacted at alumni@iona.edu.
